Elounda has gained fame as a luxury tourist resort with high-end boutique hotels and restaurants.

Elounda is renowned for its gorgeous and pristine landscape. Visitors who seek a serene and peaceful seaside vacation would be delighted to find all this in Elounda. Moreover, Elounda is in a convenient location thus not completely isolated. The town lies on the edge of the scenic lake of Korfos Bay and overlooks the Spinalonga peninsula. Spinalonga is infamous for being the last operating leper settlement on the European continent. Initially, Spinalonga was attached to mainland Crete but during Venetian occupation was converted into an island and fortified for defence purposes.
The fortress is defended by 40 cannons that date back to the 15th century. The island was originally converted into a leper colony back in the 19th century and hosted its last residents in 1957. To this day the island remains uninhabited and is considered a place of great historical interest. It is also one of the most popular attractions in the area. The island is frequently serviced by small boats which makes it an ideal day trip for visitors.
In the centre of Elounda, one can find a picturesque fishing port. Around the waterfront, there are several bars and restaurants. Also, north of the port lies the nearest beach to the town, where visitors can take some time off from sightseeing. Expect to meet some crowds whilst there.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Chania Port in Souda as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Souda is located 6.5 km east of the town of Chania on the road to Rethymnon. The town stretches along the southern coast of the Gulf of Souda. Suda is the largest natural harbour in the Mediterranean and it is formed by the main body of Crete and the Cape Meleha, called also Akrotiri.
The geophysical location and positioning of Souda, alongside with the size and suitable depth, makes it a safe harbour during the whole year. Its location in the centre of the eastern Mediterranean on the ancient sea routes gives a special strategic importance, accordingly causing the strong interest from ancient times until today. Souda Bay is one of the strategically important anchors of NATO in the Mediterranean. The port occupies the entire southwestern part of the bay and offers a modern commercial and passenger port and the main ferry link of west Crete with Piraeus.
Suda Bay has always been a large natural harbour and a strategic point of the eastern Mediterranean Sea through time for both commercial and military purposes. Consequently, most of the attractions located near Souda Bay, are directly related to the natural harbour. This port is much bigger than needed for ferries, so you won’t have any delays or get overcrowded.
